To help stranded Jammu and Kashmir residents in the national capital and other parts of the country due to lockdown, the J&K Resident Commission has set up a 24x7 dedicated helpline centre.

Additional Secretary Rimpy Ohri is supervising the centre's functioning. Three helpline numbers -- 24611210, 24611108 and 24615475 -- have been announced.

These helplines will address the issues of the local residents stranded in the national capital and elsewhere in the country, the spokesman said

Any J&K resident facing any issue due to lockdown could contact the helpline numbers, said an official spokesperson.

Hundreds of students from across the country had been helped by the commission to return to their homes or stay at various dedicated hotels in Delhi, the spokesperson added.

Meanwhile, the number of confirmed cases of covid-19 has surged to 27 with 7 fresh cases being reported today (28 March).
